The Mountain

Elevations ranging from 5,900 feet to over 7,000 feet. More snow can fall on Terry Peak than anywhere else in the region.

With a summit at 7,064 feet, Terry Peak in South Dakota is the third highest point east of the Rocky Mountains in the continental United States.  Reaching this elevation means the mountain can get up to three times as much snow as anywhere else in the region.  A vertical rise of 1,100 feet with 29 trails provides plenty of non-stop action and unlimited adventure. 

In the event of a lean Winter, Terry Peak has high-tech snowmaking equipment that can blanket 60% of the mountain with man-made powder—ensuring the conditions are great all season long. In 1936, the Bald Mountain Ski Club was the first to use the mountain as a recreational ski hill. Back then, a rope tow took adventure seekers to the top. Today, there are three high-speed chairlifts that get skiers to the top in just a matter of minutes.
